president obama says it a lot. the average family will end up spending $2,000 more if the fiscal cliff is not averted. let me show you something. you can find out how it would impact you directly by using this. there's a lot of numbers you have to plug in to make sense of it. obviously it can't be exact, it can't be precise, it can't predict the future, but i want to show you some examples we have pulled out. let's go to the graphic here that has a few of the examples we're showing you here. it would take, for example, this scenario, married with no children under the age of 65. if a couple in that instance is making about $57,000 a year, then according to the calculations, that couple would end up spending $2,262 more on taxes. that couple is high income earning, $106,000 for the income between the two of them, you're looking at more than $4,200 extra in taxes. a good example there of what we're looking at. i want to show you another example. there's something that might surprise you in the middle of this next one. i want to go to these numbers fast. if this is a couple that's married

philosophical disagreements here about taxes, about how much the government should be spending. i listened to the gentleman who said president obama won the election so he should get his way, but the republicans say, look, we won the house. i do want to see a deal done. and by the way, i don't want to see taxes go up, ali. you know that. i think it's bad for the economy -- >> but you also generally agree if there was going to be a deal, they're going to go up on some people. >> yeah. look, taxes are probably going to go up on the rich because president obama did -- you know, he went around the country saying if he was re-elected, that's what he would do. but, you know, as i told you many times, even if we don't get a deal here in the next 24 hours, this is not thelma and louise. this is a slope, not a cliff that's going to cause a crash in the economy. i do think it looks bad for the country. it's beneath us to go into this new year not knowing what the tax code is going to look like, what kind of spending cuts will go in. this is politics at its very lowest. >> let's talk about a week ago

worth of deficit due to this 100% growth in spending under president bush and president obama. and i think republicans ask for less than they should have, we're going to have to ask for more in the way of spending cuts because once we do this very small, large increase on the wealthy, but small amount of revenue, we have to come back again. and i think the middle class has to understand that you can only get so much from the rich when they're already going to be paying over 55% on their ordinary income come next year, at least in my state of california. there is going to be a limit how much you can do. ultimately all taxes end up being paid disproportionately for the middle class. >> are you going to vote for this? >> i haven't seen the bill yet. >> would you vote for tax increases or tax cuts up to 450,000? >> i said aultimately i'll finda way to support something to bring to the american people. i think this bill will have too few cuts and will depend on a small amount of people that candidly don't represent enough money to bring a real fix to our trillion dollar deficit. >> thank
